Laura Pierce Weldon
Associate Director, Custom Programs in Austin, United States
Laura joined ISA in 2005 as a University Relations Representative and spent four years in this role representing ISA in Minnesota, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Iowa and Missouri. She then took on the role of Regional Director of University Relations, and for two years worked with representatives traveling throughout the U.S. In 2011, Laura transitioned into the newly created position, Director of Partnership Programs, and enjoyed the opportunity to develop innovative program models and work with universities in a new capacity. In 2012, Partnership Programs became a part of the Custom Program division, so Laura is now happy to be a part of this department as Associate Director. In addition to working with universities on unique program models, Laura is excited to be the Custom Program Manager for Asia, as this is where she spent the majority of her time abroad. Laura graduated from Trinity University with a BA in International Politics and Chinese and spent a semester studying in Beijing. After graduating, she spent two years as an English Tutor at Lingnan University in Hong Kong, during this time accompanying study abroad groups to mainland China and England. Laura is also excited work with programs in Panama, as she was involved with the development of ISA's program in this location.
